Biggest Little Airshow in Hawaii
Pacific Aviation Museum Pearl Harbor’s popular Remote-Control Biggest Little Airshow in Hawaii is back for its seventh year Saturday and Sunday, August 15 and 16, 10am to 4pm. Guests will be able to drive on to Ford Island for this event, or take the free shuttle from the Pearl Harbor Visitor Center. There will be music, food, drinks, retail and entertainment booths and exhibits, keiki rides and activities, and lots and lots of airplanes. Sponsors, vendors, and booth participants are invited to participate. VIP Tents and Sponsor Chalets are available, also by calling 808-445-9069 or 808-441-1013.
For two days, Ford Island will come alive with remote-control flying, static aircraft and full size aircraft on display, “candy bombings” over historic Ford Island Runway for the keiki, hands-on modeling stations, a Kids Zone with rides and activities, open cockpits, and open access to Hangar 79 to see the Museum’s many aircraft exhibits and Restoration Shop.
Talented local performers and award-winning Mainland pilots from the Academy of Model Aeronautics will perform remote-control aviation feats for two days, flying their massive, 1-to-5 scale planes in the skies above the Museum. Specialty acts to be performed include: Pattern, 3-D fixed wing and helicopter aerobatic flights, aerobatics performances, South Pacific battles, "Candy Bomber" drops, and Skycam drone helicopters. Remote control aircraft will be in the air and on static display including jets, helicopters, F-22s, warbirds, B-17s, P-38s, Corsairs, OV-10s and more.
Located at the historic airstrip on Ford Island, Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam, the Biggest Little Airshow is the only show of its kind in Hawaii. Drawing crowds of approximately 12,000, it is the largest two-day event at Ford Island. This family friendly Airshow allows our sponsors unprecedented access to the show, and exposure to the community. Sponsorship opportunities range from $40,000 to a commercial booth sponsorship and can be tailored to fit your organization’s objectives.
